3 Takes on Cheesy Apple Pie… in Apples!
The whole apple pie in an apple thing has been happening for a little while now, but we love it so much we had to hop on board. And naturally, we had to add cheese. Presenting Gorgonzola Granny Smith, Fuji Brie, and Red Delicious Cheddar Apple Pie. Plus, pretty appropriate for us to get our apple on when thousands of people happen to be lining up to get their brand new Apple iPhone 5 on. ;)
– 6 apples (2 granny smith, 2 fuji, 2 red delicious)
– white cheddar
– brown sugar
– 1 can crescent roll dough
– 1/2 egg white (for brushing the dough)
Tools: ice cream scoop!
Pair your cheeses with appropriate apples. We paired gorgonzola with granny smith, red delicious with white cheddar, and fuji with brie. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
1. Fuji Brie Apple Pie
The prep for each of these is more or less the same. Cut off the top of the apple. Scoop out the inside with an ice cream scoop. Get rid of the seeds and pieces of core and cut up the scooped out apple pieces.
Now, cut up a bit of cheese (about 1/4 cup for two apples) and place in a bowl with the apple pieces. Add a squeeze of honey and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Stir up and fill your apples!
Fuji Brie is looking goooood ;)
2. Gorgonzola Granny Smith Apple Pie
Do the same with your granny smith apples. Add gorgonzola and 1 teaspoon of white sugar and add back into the scooped out apples.
3. Red Delicious Cheddar Apple Pie
And again with red delicious! Scoop ’em out, mix up the apple pieces with cheese, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Yum!
For pie crust, we used our old pal from Pretzel Pops, Pillsbury crescent roll dough.
Roll it out and cut into 4 pieces per apple. Arrange in a simple lattice and cut off any excess off the edge.
Brush with egg white and brown sugar to give it an extra glaze.
Place in a deep pan and fill with a 1/2 inch of water. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.
Uncover and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
Let cool on a wire rack and you’re good to go!!
These are particularly delicious over ice cream.
